5.0 out of 5 stars Genteel Rebel a Review January 27, 2004
Through scholarly research, careful historiography and sharp wit, Shelia Phipps brings alive to the reader the life, personality, and culture of Mary Greenhow Lee in this colorfully written volume. This book is not a biography in the traditional sense, through exploring Lee the author brings the reader into the world surrounding Lee. It is for this reason that this volume is valuable for individuals not only interested in Lee, but also the Civil War and the effect the war had on the individuals who lived through it as a civilian. This book is highly recommended by this reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Than Just A Biography August 14, 2008
"Grounded in impressive primary research and an extensive secondary literature, Sheila R. Phipps's Genteel Rebel is MORE THAN JUST A BIOGRAPHY.

This imaginative work brings readers into the complex world of Civil War-era Winchester, Virginia, and addresses important questions about women's power and Confederate identity."
---George C. Rable, author of Fredericksburg! Fredericksburg!
[from the book of the back cover]
